    Hi, Um.

    I use Transmission (a bittorrent client) a lot, and it takes up a ton of bandwidth on my network.

    Is there any time I can use an applescript to run Transmission at 12:00AM, so that it runs at midnight when no one is on?

    Transmission can be scheduled to automatically throttle bandwidth.

    Or you could make an AppleScript:
    Code:
    tell application "Transmission" to activate
    And set a new iCal alarm to run this script everyday a midnight.

    Thats great!

    EDIT; How do I do that? (I've never played with iCal before >.<)
